    What exactly did he do to deserve a raise?

    He's making three and a half times what I would have given him, though I would have loved to see him back here.

    lets hope bru doesn't see this…i won't hear the end of it:P

  3. Glucker says:

    you would pay Roberts under a mill? wow… talk about a lack of respect

    Curtis Joseph in 2006 made $900k
    Ed Belfour this year made $750k
    Dominik Hasek made $750k
    Bryan Marchment and Steve Thomas offered to play for league minimum.
    Chris Chelios made $850k

    Old guys don't make a lot of money, you can't pay $2 million for experience, and $500k for play. That's retarded.

  8. Glucker says:

    Belfour was coming off of back surgery, and Hasek doesn't care about money(I know, I worked with his former agent)
    i would have given him 2.5 on the Leafs

    Don't forget about the draft day chat. I'll be there ten to seven.

    This was to be expected but I was thinking both would have signed at the same price which is 2M.

    Pittsburgh doesn't care if they over paid Roberts or Recchi. Their salary cap is far below the max and teaching the young guys some skills is priceless. Some guys might not like the fact that they were overpaid but to Pittsburgh and the young guys on the team. Its money well spent. I myself think this is great for Pittsburgh and think Roberts and Recchi are worth 2-3mill on a penguins team. on another team i wouldn't give them so much. better luck next year Toronto, maybe if u didn't focus on signing Coliacovo and waste over 3 million over 3 years on a shit player who bets against his team with his brother. then maybe…JUST maybe u might have Roberts….Sundin is worth every penny if not more because he carries that team on his back…i feel bad for him. GOOD LUCK!!

    Bru is done with HTR….because of all the nancy boys on this site that couldn't stand reading about another team other than the Leafs; somehow they *****ed enough about him to get any of his posts held for filtering.

    Bru never went off about sucking d&*% or blowing anybody or anything like that but yet he gets filtered. There are so many idiot posters on this site that don't know half the stuff Bru does and they don't get blocked.   To whomever complained about him you just lost one of HTR's better posters…just because he'd talk about Crosby all the time and get nailed for it; causing him to retaliate he gets blocked….bullsh!t if you ask me.

    So in other words…you won't be hearing anything from Bru.

    He asked me to say to everyone with a realistic opinion and a love for hockey "thanks for the fun and for the great conversation". 

    Peoples immaturity have ruined this site.

    Cujo-meant to be a back up and mentor
    Belfour- just bought out who cares about money when u get a huge lump sum
    hasek-garbage<doesn't deserve capitals at the beginning of his name>
    Marchment,Thomas… past there prime
    Chelios-played half a season hes lucky he was there and not some rookie

    now Gary Roberts
    a guy with more heart then half those guys combined,hes not scared of his age he give it  his all. he will help Crosby mature and be a good assistant captain ffs. Roberts is still good, Penguins have alot of young players that need guidance.

  16. Glucker says:

    ugh, idiocy… stupid ppl like archion i guess

    oooh well, y doesn't he just make a new account?

  17. Glucker says:

    Colaiacovo was an excellent signing, and i agree with you on Sundin.

  18. Williams1505 says:

    its a shame that we had to lose a good man like bru…..

  19. WE-DeusEx says:

    nice name…Toronto fan? thought so

    go back to russia? are you a retard or what? go back to 67' when leafs fans were actually happy…im from Toronto myself.  how am i a dill hole? dont u watch the leafs? go to a couple games? don't you see that in the 3rd period those lazy players don't even try? don't be jealous that pens > leafs. who knows, u guys might sign belfore or cujo or i dunno…who else is over 38yrs old? coliacavo was a decent signing but not for that money…LOL. poor sundin and poor leafymcleaf for defending a team with 1 player

  20. flamingsenator says:

    wat???…i dont remember anything bad he could have gotten reported for

    other than the crosby stuff…..he was a great guy on this site….
    we had our disagreements…but i still liked him…he made it fun cuz he provided opinions ACUALLY backed by stats….not just hot air blown around

    why cant u unblock him?…..we all know he deserve to be blocked..

  21. flamingsenator says:
